ASSE Encourages People to Get Involved in Workplace Safety Campaigns
There were 4,836 fatal work injuries in the United States in 2015
ASSE has announced it will encourage people to get involved in workplace safety campaigns this summer, highlighting a number of such events on its website.
“Too many of us take for granted that our families will come together and be safe and healthy at the end of the workday,” said ASSE President Tom Cecich, CSP, CIH. “That assumption is far from reality given the large numbers of occupational injuries, illnesses and fatalities that occur. ASSE members, along with employers, workers and the public, should participate in campaigns to draw attention to the responsibility we all have to make workplaces safer and healthier.”
Some of these events include: Workers Memorial Day (April 28), Construction Safety Week (May 1-5), NAOSH Week (May 7-13) and more.
